jack said that to some dude who had to pee on the way to:
it’s not a party till someone puts a lampshade on their head
nothing is better than being woken up by eggs and coffee
omg spring really puts a spring in my step
pinkberry floor is like gravel rice krispie treat
that i would want to eat
if i were not so full of pinkberry
Levi kept going back to his therapist but progress in uncertain
this was in a book at the Art Institute!!! amazing
sorry you have to look at again
i sure enjoyed looking again!
we make each other happy more than we make each other miserable
we popped into a Marilyn Minter lecture
the lecture was great
i am her new huge fan
we went to Longman and Eagle and this is cheese
this is scallops with buttery butt sauce
(i drank many flights of whiskey)
this looks like a complex turd but is actually
maple cornbread pudding with burned olive oil ice cream and berries
BLARG! this is what that looks like
why is this thing just sitting out in the street?
Levi set a learning goal so we went on an architectural boat tour
that this guy bought a boat, the boat got stuck in a sandbar, so the guy convinced his builder friends to dump their building trash all around him, making an island
he got drunk wtih his buddies and sold them plots of land for $1 each, they declared themselves an independent state, were essentially a lawless shantytown, the boat was full of guns, the cops were terrified, until one day they got caught selling liquor on a sunday and finally were shut down
we learned about the chicago fire, about the main guy who designed the city for the 1893 worlds fair this dude Burnham who build TWO HUNDRED buildings in six months after the fire.
he also created all the public spaces parks and different bridges
also how air rights works which is VERY interesting and defines the chicago skyline
then also how the guy who designed Wacker Drive, this complex and multi tiered loop of roadway that also defines the city, and built it in 1903!!! there were barely any cars back then and it is this super futurist amazing network that is better than any highway anywhere
they didnt say much about graffiti
maybe i should lead a graffiti tour
(i know nothing about chicago graffiti; Levi told me about this guy who writes NO TEEF and he has no teeth)
all i remember about this building is that she said Kurt Russel lives here. and Sammy Sosa. Who cares.
I didn’t take any photos of the rest of the day before my plane left at 5pm because I mostly just cried. I think I am hormonal. Or that life is crushingly sad and well lets just post a poem about it:
You left me – Sire – two Legacies –
A Legacy of Love
A Heavenly Father would suffice
Had He the offer of –
You left me Boundaries of Pain –
Capacious as the Sea –
Between Eternity and Time –
Your Consciousness – and me –

Thanks for sharing.
how oddly coincidental–I just missed the Marylin Minter lecture but was at the museum that day. and your friend has a few mutual friends of mine. small small worlds.
everytime a piece of cheese sweats
another angel has forgotten to close a door somewhere.
It truly is so much easier with one those times that I have one and the other is with my wife or other fmialy & I marvel. I mean, you do what you set out to do, and you just have a buddy along for the ride.Those pictures are precious, but you already knew that.I wish I could figure out how to create more “one-on-one” time, because, as you say, it really is so important. And fun.John recently posted..John recently posted.. Reply:September 20th, 2011 at 12:37 pmIt really was so much fun. I hope you get a chance to experience it soon. I could not believe how easy it was to get out of the house! I’m convinced that each child adds an additional hour to the getting ready routine.

The first few years of our blended fliamy my husband and I would take a evening with each of our step-daughters. As my step-daughter would say, ‘Just me and ‘steppy’ tonight!’. (We also spent time with our biological kid one on one).We dropped it for a couple of years and but I really miss it. Lately I’ve been taking my step-daughter out running. Some of my most found memories is spending time with one parent and NO siblings around!Molly recently posted..Molly recently posted..

When my sister and I were liltte, my parents scheduled a special night once a month. My dad took one of us out on a “date” at a restaurant of our choice (to teach us how we should expect to be treated by a gentleman) and the other would stay home with my mother. She fixed our FAVORITE meal (the one the other sister didn’t like) and we would have alone time.It was wonderful.Wonderful.julie gardner recently posted..julie gardner recently posted..
